What is the Stuff that Makes Firefighters Unique Heroes?

A PRIME Insurance Special

There was a time when a little boy that was asked what he wanted to be when he grew up would list a fireman right next to the policeman. Today’s world of broad opportunities may ignite the answer for girls as well.

What is it about being a firefighter that sparks such admiration even among the youngest of society?

Consistently at the site of a fire, an auto collision and scenes of crisis, the volunteer or paid firefighter’s task of battling a threatening fire and protecting the public from its ravishes regularly places him or her in danger’s way. While firefighting is the chief duty in the life of a fireperson, the heroism goes beyond that.

Firefighters are persistently trained to perform the following public service:

  • Extinguish fires
  • Conduct search and rescue missions in fires, wildfires, and other natural crises, such as floods, tsunamis, earthquakes, and tornadoes
  • Implement emergency medical procedures on sick or hurt parties until other first responders arrive
  • Probe causes of fires particularly for legal and insurance claim purposes in the event of arson
  • Prevent the possibility of fires through community education and fire-safety inspections

Newspaper stories often portray the firefighter as the champion that rescues a little kitten stuck in a high tree. The tragic events of 9/11, as well as various firefighting episodes have demonstrated that risks, peril and the ultimate sacrifice is as much a part of this heroic job than any ‘human interest’ anecdote will portray.
